Summary

Dorothy Costa stood for Parliament only once: the 1988 Canterbury elections as a Socialist Party of Australia candidate.

Details

One of the problems of the electorate, stressed by Dorothy Costa in her 1988 campaign, was the use of sections of Canterbury Road by prostitutes. She also was concerned about the deterioration in the hospitals and public schools in the area.

Sources used to compile this entry: Bankstown Canterbury Torch, 16 March 1988.
